The Lyrics

The river glows, it don't normally
whyever that river glows, radiation will be
glow, river glow, let the fallout wash out
reactor explodes, we can't go back now

what we wanted - cheap energy
thats not the way, that it seems to be
glow, river glow, get the money spent now
and the waste won't go, we can't go back now

glow, river glow, half live in ten years
glow, river glow, keep it from me

The river glows, don't look safe to me
government says "no, uranium's healthy"
glow, river glow, close parts of Russia now
anyway we know, we can't go back now
